Dinwiddie refuses to put his own ad on his team’s jersey patch


A current NBA player has just tried putting his own jersey patch advertisement on his own team’s uniform – and has been turned down.

Point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who signed a three-year $ 62 million deal with the Washington Wizards last summer and is the creator of the blockchain-based influencer app Calaxy, had foiled his $ 12 million offer to the team from the NBA .

The player-team deal reportedly violated league rules that prohibit players from working with team owners – a potential conflict of interest. Dinwiddie Confirmed the failed deal on Twitter, however still seems to be trying to revive the negotiations.

“I thought it was a complete bunch of BS because I really paid full price for it,” Dinwiddie told NBCSports Washington’s Chase Hughes.

“I think they sold it for $ 12 million or something like that. For example, brother, I would pay for that. Can I just put on my jersey patch? [near] Capitol Hill, in a new jersey with a crypto patch on the jersey. But they shot that down, so the NBA hates it. “

Calaxy, short for “Creator Galaxy”, is a community engagement app that enables influencers to sell digital tokens that can be redeemed for access to the Calaxy Creator Network. The cryptocurrency can, among other things, lead to virtual interactions with Dinwiddie or special virtual events such as basketball clinics. His mantra is: “The open social marketplace for creators, by creators”.

The deal with the Wizards jersey patch with Geico expired this summer. Team owner Ted Leonsis also heads the Washington Capitals, who last week partnered with Caesar Entertainment to become the first professional sports team in the US to have a betting company logo on the front of their uniforms.
